    To he who claimed that Scientology is a non-religion or a cult, I remind you that the continuum between a religion, a cult, and a crazy person is purely based on population (many - few - one).
    "Cult" as in "an organization that uses isolation, propaganda, blackmail, violence etc. to control people for the benefit of a few or one head honcho(s)"? Yes.

    "Religion" as in "an organization wasn't claimed to 'not [be] a religion' by its founder, until reports of its fraudulent claims started to be made known to the government, then didn't perpetrate the largest infiltration of the U.S. government (especially of the IRS) in history, then didn't tell its members to make fraudulent lawsuits while it hired private investigators to look into the personal lives of IRS officials until they suddenly made a secret deal with the IRS that gave it tax exemption, including exemptions for "religious education" (something only scientology has)"? No.

    Doesn't appear to me that he does worry about learning from others. Sounds like he doesn't want to be preached at.

    I come from the same mindset he does. Have you ever read 'The Subtle Power of Spiritual Abuse' by Jeff VanVonderen and Dave Johnson? It goes a way in explaining why some of us still have our faith, but no longer have any desire to belong to a "Christian" community.

    Re: What Relgion do you belong too?

    I'm frustrated by the fact that "Atheist" and "Agnostic" are always lumped together. I am agnostic. I am not atheist. I don't want to check that box though because 'atheist' is also contained. An Atheist believes there is no deity. An agnostic acknowledges that there could be a deity. But maybe not. But they have room to believe that there probably is a deity, but with enough skepticism that they are not a religious person. Also, as an agnostic, I wouldn't be 'shocked' if there were no deity. I'm almost indifferent because it is impossible to 'know' one way or another. An Atheist actually says their belief is that there is no deity.

    Re: What Relgion do you belong too?

    I grew up as a Catholic, in a Catholic community in rural Ireland, and went to a Catholic school run by nuns. The local priest told us that anyone who is born into a Catholic community and baptised is a Catholic whether they want be or not. If that priest is right, then I am a Catholic. I dont practice any Catholic rituals though, and I doubt the virgin mother was a virgin. I think, in those days non virgins were discriminated against, and got the less desirable husbands, so if a girl could get away with lying about her sexual history she did.

    Hellenic meaning Greek (ie Athena etc) correct

    I had thought most Pagans tended to follow more of the Nordic versions

    Re: What Relgion do you belong too?

    I'm somewhere between non-denominational Christian and agnostic/athiest. I was a very devout born again evangelical Christian but eventually decided I needed to re-evaluate some things.

    Actually, agnostic means that someone believes that the truth of a deity's existence cannot be known. It's a belief.

    Atheism is technically a belief that god does not exist.

    Both agnosticism and Atheism, using the Oxford definitions, require a positive belief in a single direction.

    So I don't fit either definition, as I lack any positive beliefs regarding a deity.

    To explain, I do not believe that God does not existence (which rules out atheism), but I also do not believe that God exists (which rules out theism).

    I do not believe that the truth of a deity's cannot be known (which rules out agnosticism), but I also do not believe that the truth of a deity's existence can be known (which rules out gnosticism).

    Since that leaves me devoid of any beliefs, I am most accurately described as an "unbeliever".
